Happy Birthday, Carol!

Well, I decided that instead of sending a card, I would write a blog entry that everyone could see. Not to mention that it's cheaper and you don't have to plan ahead as much!

Carol, I remember that day when you were born 38 years ago. How badly Ann and I wanted a brother! What were we thinking?

Fortunately, God knew better what I needed, and I can't imagine life without my little sister. We have shared so many great memories. I miss getting to be around you all the time and getting to know your children better. You are a great Mom and a wonderful teacher. I have learned a lot from you.

Thanks for always being my friend (you really didn't have a choice about the sister thing). I hope that God will really bless this coming year and all the years to come.

I love you,


P.S. Wish we could go to Rick's to celebrate.

Way to Go, Rebecca!

Today we had a visit from Greg Harper, representing the Panasonic Living in HD program. We had a great time talking with him, learning some more cool things about the products, etc. He took one look at the photos Rebecca had taken in the past week that we've had the products and was very impressed. He wanted to shoot her giving a tutorial to put on their new website (launch date is May 28th), and he said that he would probably recommend that Panasonic give her an SLR and several lenses to develop her talent! He also thinks an underwater video camera would be great for our family. Isn't that cool?

Smart Dog

Jingle is now learning to use the laptop! Seriously, she is a very bright dog and a lot of fun. I thought you might want to see how she has grown. She should be about full-size now. She's about as tall as a cocker, but she is longer and skinnier. We had to send ten pictures to Panasonic of our family members using their products, so we decided to include Jingle.
